Seriously. You make a fool out of yourself claiming that you are more reliable than Displaysearch.
Thats what I say. 16:10 dont have sources for their claims. They simply cant handle the truth.
I never said 16:9 wasn't getting more and more and more and more common. You are arguing against a point I didn't make.
My point has always been that all aspect ratios are still supported just as fine as 16:9 with a few exceptions (a handful of games, where you could just letterbox)
I'm not more trustable than the editor on displaysearch who wrote that article, or added that little comment about 16:9 having higher res, because I don't have enough of a reputation, but It does not mean I am not more correct than him though.
Please list the highest 16:10 and 16:9 resolutions in the consumer grade market. Want to prove your point? List those two! BE DONE WITH IT. And, consumer grade. That means mass produced, widely available, and only a few thousand dollars tops.
I know the "higher end" projectors and panels are 16:9 or wider, but those do not meet the consumer grade specification
Besides, I feel as if his choice of words referred to lower resolutions, not the absolute max resolutions. For example 1680x1050 vs 1920x1080, which was the common transition among bigger laptops. And desktops. But the comment does not apply to highest consumer end.
